Most political secrets are eventually revealed. Unfortunately it often happens years after the events actually happened. One example was an extra-marital affair in which 1940 Republican presidential nominee, Wendell Wilkie, was engaged in. Few knew about this affair until about 40 years later when secret recordings were made available of President Franklin D. Roosevelt chuckling over this situation with cronies in the White House. Oh, and those FDR White House recordings, another political secret, were themselves not revealed until decades after they were made. Unfortunately your humble correspondent doesn't have the patience (or maybe even the lifespan) to wait for those revelations. I want to find out about those many secrets before I depart this world. Call it part historical curiosity and the rest just flat out interest in juicy gossip but I have a list of political secrets that I need to see revealed. Here is a partial list of political secret revelations that I hope can become available before bucket-kicking time:
Al Gore meeting with George W. Bush following the 2000 election concession
Remember when President-Elect George W. Bush met with Al Gore following the latter's concession speech after weeks of prolonging the election outcome in December 2000? What was notable about that meeting was how amazingly short it was...approximately 10 minutes. Both Bush and Gore have remained closed mouthed about what was said at the meeting. Why was it so short? Why did Bush appear perturbed following the meeting? My guess is that Gore must have acted like a jerk which irritated Bush and caused him to leave early. Did Gore demand to become a sort of co-president? Or perhaps he harangued Bush with an annoying lecture. So far no more information about that meeting has leaked.

Lets begin with Obama’s birth certificate and college records.
I think its pretty obvious what Gore would have said.
We are going to Hound you for your entire time in the White House ,you will wish you lost
Then there was that undergraduate that Bill Clinton was said to have raped at Oxford. Was he kicked out of Oxford for that, or because he was too busy organizing protests in London to attend any lectures or sessions with his tutor?
Speaking of attending, was there ever ANY classes that Obama attended at Columbia U?
One “secret” that isn’t really secret is Charlie Crist’s “secret.” Nope. No secret there that has to be revealed.
It's mounted on a wall surrounding the New York Public Library on West 40th Street just off Fifth Avenue.
Since we know a little more about "Call me Al," he probably said something like: "Hey George, speaking of global warming, I think Laura is HOT."
Actually Wendell Wilkie is the subject of the best political photo ever. Will try to see if I can find it but the photo is absolutely incredible. A great piece of Americana.
Al Gore’s father promised him that he would be President when he grew up. So he thought he was entitled. Bush was nothing but a dumb Chimp who stole the election from him.
He was entitled. . . . So I doubt he was very polite to the chimp.
I can't find it either. I might not be in the public domain.
This isn’t a secret since I knew about this years ago, but LBJ used to have Sec. Defense Robert McNamara brief him while sitting stark naked on the toilet taking a dump. It supposedly unnerved McNamara who held his disgust in check. I would have loved to have seen secret video (film) of those encounters.
